Would just like to point out, that alot of people were posting comments that we should just get rid of Grant, because he was not acting like a "Payton type of player". I'm glad he got resigned as well, but if this were a game of "Around the Horn", some people would be getting points taken for flip flopping. : )

contract will pay Grant $24 million in its first three years
nearly $35 million in the first five years.
11 million in the next 2
Actual this is not a bad deal
8 mill per for 3 yrs
5.5 mill per for the next 2
7 million average for 5 years.
no idea what the other 2 looks like yet.
good deal.

It's a fair deal, it gives the Saints more cap room this year for the June cuts, keeps the continuity of the defense and a very good player in town, and prevents Tampa Bay from getting a very good player in 2008.

Loomis, baybee!!!

It's like someone secretly substituted our regular GM crystals with Jim Finks crystals,

I was happy when I heard it. Everytime the ball is snapped, Charles is chasing the QB or RB. The QB cannot set his feet often, when Charles is chasing him. He is not going to get the sack everytime, but he is always there trying to get it.

I don't know about this. Players seem to play harder in a contract year, and weaker once they get the contract they want. I hope this doesn't hold true for Grant.

Grant is well worth the money he was given..
What gets me is how Benson has been spending money since last season, he's helping in building one hell of a team...
The upcoming season looks good for Saint fans
